Indeed it is smile.gif I think that you need to copy something in order to understand a principle and then, transform the principle in order to evoke it in your own manner. At least this is what I am trying to do - sometimes it works immediately, sometimes it doesn't smile.gif It's all trial and error, so be curious and explore all the time!



This is how it also works for me and I really enjoy with both results, when it works immediately, which seems to be more natural, and when it takes more time to understand and incorporate the style, which could end with a deeper result.

You guys ever transition from thinking it was all feel at one point......and then later you learn your theory, and it's still you feel where the music should go next, but your brain now makes the connection to go to the 4 chord, or 5 chord, so you start to feel like you write music more based on the theory than the feel. Although it's all semantics really lol

Ah, au contraire smile.gif I am writing more based on feeling rather than theory as I stated in this thread, I think smile.gif But theory helps a lot when I need to change a direction or create counterpoint or replace some notes for a different effect - you know, understanding what you do, in order to be at ease with changing things in a knowledgeable manner and being able to communicate efficiently with those around you that need to understand what to do when working with you.
